Hieroglyphs in UTEE

This card uses several techniques including stamping into UTEE (ultra thick embossing enamel).  The background was created using cream card, stamping in black with a stone effect image, and colouring by blending two or three dye inks together.   The main focal image was created using UTEE powder and melting it directly onto a heat resistant mat. I usually use two layers of clear, then the third and last layer is made by sprinkling two or three coloured embossing powders on top.  This is then heated and stamped into whilst still hot.  The image can be coated in clear or coloured ink before stamping into the UTEE and this will help the stamp to release when the UTEE is cool.  A piece of blue card has been stamped with the same image in clear versamark ink to create a watermark effect, then the UTEE piece was trimmed and attached.  All the pieces were then matted and layered to finish the card.
